There are small microbeads in this microfoliant but they usually cannot be felt if the product is used right. When I first started using the BioBeauty Daily Pore Refining Microfoliant, I followed the instructions written and tried making it into a paste by adding a bit of water, but I realised there was a very strong and piercing smell that is grass-like. However, I found out that it is better to foam up the product. Using it that way is more gentle and made more sense as well.
I usually use this on days when I feel that my face is oilier than normal, or when I have makeup on for long hours, especially if I do not want to use a rougher scrub. This microfoliant is somewhat like double cleansing for me whenever I feel there is a need to cleanse another time. The website states that you can use this in place of your normal cleanser, but I prefer my Fancl Washing Powder so I prefer to use this as a very mild scrub.
I have used the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant before and I think this is a cheaper alternative to that, except the Dermalogica one does not foam up as much.
I do not recommend using the BioBeauty Daily Pore Refining Microfoliant daily however, as I feel that it might be a bit too drying. It might be fine for those with oily skin, but I would advise those with normal to dry skin to not use it daily. You can use it like I do, on days when you need extra cleansing, or perhaps alternate days. I used it daily before and I found it was a bit too drying but I have to say that when I used this daily, I had significantly lesser blackheads.
So all in all, this product works as it did work to reduce my blackheads, skin was smoother as well, but it can be drying if used daily in the long run.
